SixOfSpades Posted November 16, 2005 Share Posted November 16, 2005 When you're gambling with Aesgareth, he has a 75% chance to win every time. While I agree that this is in some way accurate (professional gamblers make moeney because, most of the time, they aren't actually gambling), it's not exactly fun--the only way I can achieve fairness is to allow myself one Reload while dueling for each item. And what's with that last draw, where Aesgareth is guaranteed to win every time?!? At least there's relatively low risk: There's no danger in "I wager some of my experience" when even Monks can have access to nondispellable NPP by this point. Using the Deck on your own is almost equally laughable: There's some logic to why the gods might allow someone like you a maximum of three draws from the deck, but why the hell should the odds of what cards you draw be determined by what cards had been drawn previously? Huh? HUUUHHH?!? What I'd like to see: All users of the Deck have exactly the same odds of drawing from the same set of cards and their effects. Any card, once drawn, disappears and cannot be drawn again. The only NON-random element is that the "BALANCE" card cannot be drawn during the duel with Aesgareth. The effects of each card are irrelevant to its "suit." If you wager some experience during the duel, Aesgareth will take precisely that, instead of trying (and failing) to Level Drain you. 1 invisible creature, which already exists, 52 (or so) local variables--this one seems quite doable.
